TV Film Of The Week – 7th April


Welcome to the TV Film of the Week – the name says it all! It’s Friday, so here’s our choice of the best films on TV in the next 7 days!

Let’s get straight to it and run down this week’s recommendations!

NB since we are all still ushers at heart, our weeks will start on a Friday.

So, our TV Film of the Week is:

Song of the Sea
(BBFC Rating PG, Tomm Moore, 2014)

Film 4
Tuesday 11th April, 14:45

All I need to say is: a young boy and his sister go on magical journey. A beautiful, truly great animated film.

An alternative choice, our other TV Film of the Week is….

Dredd
(BBFC Rating 18, Pete Travis, 2012)

Dredd

Channel4
Saturday 8th April, 22:35

Before Logan (and to a lesser extent Deadpool) attempts to make hard 15/18-rated comic book films produced mixed results. The Punisher films never really got it right, and Judge Dredd bottled out on the concept and went in a totally different direction. Dredd is probably the best of adaptations out there, and the fact it failed at the box office is probably more due to marketing and positioning than the film itself. A brutal treat.

For your consideration

And since I’m here, these are my thoughts on the best of the rest:

Goldfinger (BBFC Rating PG, Guy Hamilton, 1964) – Sean Connery and the Bond franchise hit upon the perfect formula with Goldfinger. ITV1, Sunday 9th April, 13:45

X-Men First Class (BBFC Rating 12, Matthew Vaughn, 2011) – A film that re-energized the X-Men franchise. James McAvoy and Michael Fassbendertake over the roles as youthful Charles and Erik, before they became Professor X and Magneto. Film4, Monday 10th April, 21:00

Bloody Sunday (BBFC Rating 15, Paul Greengrass, 2001) – Before he made the Bourne films, Paul Greengrass made this excellent film about one of the British army’s darkest days. James Nesbitt was never better. Movies4Men, Monday 10th April, 22:55

5 Children & It (BBFC Rating U, John Stephenson, 2004) – Eddie Izzard voices a It, a wish-granting creature who lives on a beach. It helps a group of children who have been evacuated to the countryside during World War 2, and have to deal with an eccentric uncle – Ken Brannagh.  5*, Tuesday 11th April, 11:20

Step Up (BBFC Rating 12, Anne Fletcher, 2006) – For Snooty Usher Dan, He likes the dancing. ITV2, Tuesday 11th April, 10:15

And that’s it. We’ll see you next week when The Snooty Ushers choose their TV Film Of The Week!

Until next time, stay gold, Ponyboy, stay gold. See you soonish.

that's all folks
